History: Griz was born on Decatur Island, WA. He's the son of Semper Cooper's Mulligan CCA***. A very successful Field Trial competitor. I had the opportunity to met and watch Mulligan run. A very impressive dog. I determined that if the right situation came along, we'd pick one out. The right opportunity presented itself. Griz comes from a history of hunters and titled field performers.
Griz has been amateur and professionally trained in upland hunting and Hunt Test's competition. He is lovable, strong and a treat to have around.

Amber SHR Windy Ridge Ambrosia
Sea Duck Hunter - Northern Washington State SHR = Started Hunting Retriever
Amber weighs about 50 lbs. She is both driven in the field and a sweetheart in the house. She is smart, has a great nose, alert, persistent and focused. She loves the water, both for work and play. She has a beautiful dark golden coat that is true to her name.
I breed & buy pups based on pedigrees and usage. I'm a big proponent of proven hunting lines mixed with Field Trial or Hunt Test lines. Targeted COI < 10% for genetic diversity. In general, this cross produces a very athletic, harder driving retriever I.E. Griz. I have found that these litter types are interested, good on/off switch, strong retrieving drive, multi dimensional usages, training backbone, biddable and make terrific family companions.
